‘I Was Invited By EFCC’ – FFK Denies Being Arrested

0

Former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode, has denied media reports claiming he was arrested by operatives of Economic and Financial Crimes Commission on Tuesday.

Fani-Kayode, who rejoined All Progressive Congress in September, was said to be under investigation for alleged forgery and manipulation of documents.

The former minister had been having a running battle with the EFCC for some time and he was once remanded for 67 days in 2016 alongside a former minister of finance, Nenadi Usman.

The duo and two others were facing a 17-count of criminal conspiracy, fraud and money laundering to the tune of N4.9 billion.

They denied the allegations, and each of them was later granted N250 million bail.

However, reacting to the alleged arrest, FFK posting photos on his Instagram page, said;

Just arrived at the George Hotel for dinner. I was never arrested by the EFCC. I was invited & I flew down to Lagos to see them. I arrived in their office at 2.00pm & left at 8.30pm. I was granted bail on self recognition. They were very polite & professional. Thanks be to God.

He added;

I pity those that said I was arrested. They are filled with hate & live on fake news. Since when did an invitation & a friendly chat become an arrest? And even if I had been arrested, SO WHAT? I am not above the law & neither does joining APC give me immunity. My God is MIGHTY!
